    • Improving Performance of a Space-Time Turbo Code in a Rayleigh Faded Channel 

      Huang, Everest; Gatherer, Alan; Muharemovic, Tarik; Hocevar , Dale (2001-10-20)
      Starting with an ordinary parallel concatenated turbo encoder in a block fading Rayleigh channel, we introduce bit-interleaving of the outputs, not for time diversity, but to increase the coding gain. We develop a guideline metric for designing QPSK space-time codes which reveals both the coding and diversity advantage of the system, as well as shows ...
